I have recently seen some magic involving the folding of a dollar bill which turns into a book of matches right in front of my eyes.
I was absolutely awestruck.
I was wondering where I could find the answer to this or how I can purchase it. Maybe I wasn't looking hard enough, but I can't seem to find anything on this so far.

If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it.

Oh...and one more thing. If anyone does know the secret to this, tell me this...is it completely examinable at the end?

thanks a lot.

I think I know a way it could be done, I'm not saying I do. I don't think it would be examinable at the end

I'd be open to your methods or any other advice.

Do a search on google.com for 'dollar bill to matches' and you'll find at least 2 places to get it....it costs about 10 bucks.

But if you give it some thought you could just make your own. Use your imagination...sit down and play around with a bill and a book of matches and it should come to you...it's really very simple.

I just got Dollar Bill to Matchbook about a week ago, off Ebay. I had seen a fleeting shot of it on a Patrick Page video a coupla years ago, but it was just a "teaser", and not one of the effects taught. I had the effect in mind ever since, but never really sought it out. It's really a simple prop, but I would recommend you buy it first, and maybe make your own later as a replacement. The whole idea is to keep doing the simple move till it becomes almost reflex, then it looks really magical, like the bill just kind of "pops" into a matchbook. It's about 10 bucks for the one I got. Just go to Ebay and search "dollar bill to matchbook" It's not examinable, but the matchbook can be shown front and back, and you can open the cover and pull a match out, and strike it. A nice pocket impromptu trick--

Oh, I forgot to mention earlier.....Oz has a video of this trick on his site under the name of "Matches"...go to www.watchmagic.com and click on videos....it's down the list a little.
